themselves against that. >> well, that was the follow. do they have any defenses, are there any defenses and what are they doing to prepare for the prospect if theyhink that it's real? >> reporter: they have nothing. they have absolutely nothing. the people here have not had anything to begin with to protect themselves from the bullets and the bombs, and most certainly when it comes to chemical warfare, they have no defenses whatsoever, bearing in mind, too, that this is a population that is not just struggling with the violence and the ongoing strikes and artillery raining around them, it is also a population that is barely able to make ends meet. the prices here have skyrocketed astronomically to the point where bread, something that is a basic commodity, has become something of a luxury. people are completely and totally helpless already in the face of the regime's air power and other artillery. they are going to be just as helpless in the face of any sort of chemical warfare if the regime does, in fact, decide to employ that. >> is there any sense among the rebels, the opposition, th

faith with the men and women who have suffered grievous disability in defense of our nation, and we owe them nothing less. this treaty is not about changing america. it's about america changing the world. but a vote here is a test of this institution. this vote is a test of whether the senate, which passed the civil rights act and the voting rights act and the americans with disabilities act, is still capable of voting to change things, let alone send a message that could change the world. i ask colleagues to do for the world what they've done for america -- walk down the aisle here and for millions everywhere who cannot walk make a stateme statement. raise your voice and vote for millions who are voiceless in their own lands. stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves. this is not about the united nations. this is about common humanity. and this vote is to test whether the senate will stand up for those who cannot see or hear and whether senators can hear the truth and see the facts. please don't let captain brzynski down, please don't let senator bob dole down. most importa
that kicks in, that will have a slow impact. it's not like the defense department will say stop building tomorrow. these are things in the pipeline, and these things continue for a long time before there is an impact. >> the administration can take steps to further mitigate what the see questions trace would inflict sequestration would inflict on the economy. there are things that they can do to limb the damage. the reason why there is such a big question mark hanging over there would be a deal or not the administration has run a hard line of late about tax rates needing to go up, and the decision-making process in the republican party is sort of become dysfunctional and irrational and even though they could potentially minimize the damage by voting to extend all the middle income tax cuts, they can't bring themselves to do it until after all the tax cuts expire. then obama, you know, is not necessarily bound by just that demand. he could come and ask to free up more revenue. as dan was saying, i think they hope that something in the market will make the democrats move quickly but if the
a different view. the defense minister argued that exports to saudi arabia could help stabilize the situation in the middle east. we spoke to a defense analyst. i asked him how likely it is that saudi arabia could use these german tanks to put down uprisings and crush dissent. >> the boxer tanks which are discussed today are an armored vehicle used for transport purposes, not so much for riot control. it is a german-dutch corp. project. it is used mainly for the transportation to protect against insurgents in afghanistan. it is not designed so much for riot control or to control insurgencies, but more to protect the forces of germany and other countries in the field. >> the opposition is accusing the government of flouting court -- german guidelines. is that fair to say? >> the current policy guidelines for arms export in germany go back to the red green government a couple years ago. the current government is more or less responsible for the current guidelines. there is room for improvement. one of the points is that the arms export report is published one year after the actual decisions abo
: what has the navy said? >> reporter: the department of defense wasted no time saying they do not have any missing drones. they said the u.s. navy has accounted for all unmanned vehicles operating in the middle east. our operations are confined to international waters and space. how then might this drone have ended up in the hands of the iranians. it's possible they found it in the sea. they have been lost in the water but nothing recently. often the distance on the map, there is -- there is some frary an -- thereis some farsi and so. the farsi says "we'll trample on the u.s." iran is trying to squeeze out every ounce of propaganda from what it says it a u.s. drone. bill: we are working our sources at the pentagon stateside. martha: this comes amid new concern over tehran's nuclear program. its nuclear chief saying it will continue nuclear enrichment with intensity. it claim it needs it to fuel a nuclear research reactor. expert say that could be converted into a nuclear weapon. speaking of this nuclear site, inspectors say iran is poised to double the number of site to 1,400. let's g

or four years before you have to make the changes, but there is no defense to making the changes. even if it is a historical building. that is not a defense. when i get involved, it is because 90% of the time, the tenant is the only one who gets the notice, though the notice is addressed both to the tenant and landlord. next thing you see, you are handed a piece of paper by some stranger, and it is a lawsuit. then you need to find a lawyer. probably 90% of these cases are in federal court. it becomes much more costly to get a lawyer involved. most lawyers charged somewhere between $5,000 or $10,000 to get involved in some of these cases. you need to file a formal answer in the court. you will be in a mediation process, which means you will meet with people appointed by the court to try to resolve this issue. the revolution is just what i said. it is major repairs if they are appropriate, and not all repairs are in demand. and, to settle the damaged portion of the case. in my experience, the damages claimed usually run somewhere between $15,000 or $5,000, and attorneys fees generally ru
the alliance's defense will look like on turkey's border to syria. >> it is designed to detect, intercept, and hit an enemy missile. there are batteries like these stationed in germany. some could be deployed to turkey within weeks. berlin is calling it a legitimate request from a nato ally. >> turkey has already been hit by cross-border mortar fire from syria, so it is understandable that turkey is holon and has asked the alliance for a sign of solidarity. refusing that request would have profound implications for the alliance and send the wrong signal to the regime of president assad. >> nato is warning damascus not to cross a red line, for instance, by using chemical weapons. >> the use of chemical weapons would be completely unacceptable for the whole international community, and if anybody resorts to these terrible weapons, i would expect an immediate reaction. >> apart from germany, the u.s. and netherlands are also expected to supply patriots. both have backed a rapid deployment to their nato allies. >> i think if one of our allies asks us to help with that, i think you need to con
at the republicans to get all the tax hikes he wants, all the defense cuts he's always wanted and some democrats are stating flat out they want to go over the fiscal cliff. watch this. >> i personally think you'll get a lot more deficit reduction if we do the fiscal cliff. i think the markets will reward the fiscal cliff over a period. there will be some panic and moaning and groaning, but first of all, the fiscal cliff is not a real cliff. it's a slope. and you're going to get the biggest bank for the buck in terms of deficit reduction. i think the economy can stand it. yes, we will go into two quarters of recession the cbo says, and i believe that. we're in deep trouble here. somebody's going to have to pay the bill. it's going to have to be all of us. >> joining me with more on all of this, patrick j. buick as well as former clinton special counsel davis. the president campaigns on $800 billion in new taxes. he now wants 1.6 trillion. he wants twice the amount, lanny. he wants a blank check and congress to give up its authority as it relates to money and say no, no, let me raise the debt ceil
has a bright line. it says if you engage in a wongful action, there is a defense called the insanity defense which never works as most of us know because we don't recognize it. should we recognize it, that's an interesting question. should we have a more robust concept of diminished responsibility in light of the understanding that some people have less control over their preferences and desires or should we have better sentencing schemes or get rid of incarceration and come up with different models of trying to deal with punishment once we understand people have wrong selections. i think those are all interesting questions, but is there free will? well, the fact that almost everybody in the audience raised either their right or left hand contemplated it and were quickly able to act and respond. that to me says, yes, there is. now what do we want to do about it? now that we understand that those of us in the audience or up here that like chocolate cake may not have control over it, how do we want to account for that if at all in the criminal justice system? to date, we haven't. in th
spending cuts. a lot coming out of defense. these are not long-term structural changes that will put us on a path to a balanced budget. that will not happen. melissa: the other thing that struck me about the graphic when you look at it, the threat from republicans hey, we would rather go over the cliff rather than take the president's deal, to me doesn't look terribly credible when you look at actual numbers. unless you take into perspective we're not really going over for 10 years. but it is just going over the cliff is so focused on raising taxes, on absolutely everybody and spending cuts are really not that impressive in terms of getting, you know, the gap down smaller. they say if you compare it to the white house plan they would rather go over the cliff. i'm not sure that is really credible given those numbers. what do you think?. >> way some republicans not all, growing number of republicans are looking at this, assigning blame to the president, making clear this is the president's plan and they don't have anything to do with it is politically more beneficial for them both in the
that in the senate. in terms of saving money on defense, you are right, and we are. the two sides agreed to over $500 billion in defense cuts. people say is this funny money, is it real? it is not something i am in favor of because we live in a dangerous world we will lose 75,000 soldiers. we wanted to have 213 combat vessels. we will have 288. this is real reduction. i think the secretary of defense, secretary leon panetta has -- will tell you we have gone as far as we can safely go. i think both sides, and the president, i do not think we want military capability lower. i think we have saved as much as we possibly can. in terms of the other things, after the bush tax cuts came to thousand three, and revenue is higher than it was in 2003, and generated a lot of growth, and the deficit with the last republican majority leaving office -- our problem is a spending problem. we're spending a lot more money than we were then when the president came into office. we're putting off dealing with entitlement programs. we will double the people on medicare in the next 20 years. we should focus on where the prob

[laughter] >> how did that go? >> not too well, not too well. [laughter] which is my point. i spoke with the chinese admirals interpreter. i spoke with admiral commander in english, a great conversation. but never was the bridge build or even considered. and i think one of the key issues here, with respect to china as they emerge, as a real leading nation is the ability to build bridges, to communicate to build strategic trust and cooperation, to enable every forum, the east asian summit, asian, and others, all bilateral come multilateral relationships in order to keep the volume as well as possible spent last year i had the privilege of interviewing henry kissinger about his book on china. in their there's a chat about strategic trust. i said i can ask kissinger if you still kissinge
in self defense. >>> republicans took the bait. they delivered a counter proposal to president obama's plan to avert the fiscal cliff. guess what, the white house rejected it, calling the gop proposal unbalanced and not serious. translation? no tax hikes on the wealthy so democrats said forget about it. we thought you should take a look. it totals $2.2 trillion in deficit reduction over ten years. the part that stood out to us was $600 billion in proposed savings in medicare reforms. how? in part by raising the age of eligibility to 65 to maybe 67. turning down the gop proposal, dan pfieffer said, quote, it provides no details on which deductions they would eliminate, which loopholes they will close or which medicare savings they would achieve." let's head now to the white house and dan lothian. the white house will not offer a counter proposal, right? what's going on here? >> reporter: well, you know, i think the white house is digging in. the president said early on in this process that he would only sit down and really move forward, negotiate on this in any meaningful way if the t

it was a forbidden topic in the defense department. this was through 2004. i got funding from the department of defense and it created the energy conversation. i want to get to a point that was brought up in number of times, having the american public understand this unbelievably complex story. i recommend you all watch alan alda's vido, "the flame." when he was 11 years old -- he asked what a lfmae was and could not get a good answer. university and they put on a worldwide contest to explain what a flame is to 11 year-old. they had 600 submissions and 6011 year old evaluated this. keep in mind how complex that is. i bought a book two weeks ago called "black gold" for my granddaughter by albert marin. i recommend of the academics in this room or anywhere. not many people are going to read or understand your report. a lot of what needs doing telling this story as that it has to be visual because it is so unbelievably complicated, interdependence, integrated, and for most of us, it just looks like chaos. i'm going to suggest that you do things like kids were studying english working with those
